Information for foreigners who want to apply for EU grants
A foreigner conducting business activities in Poland needs to have registered office in Poland to be the subject to same rules of EU grants application assessment as the partnerships with solely Polish capital.
In compliance with EU regulations, a company registered in one of EU state members is a EU entrepreneur who is subject to economic freedom and free flow of capital.
Given this, while assessing EU grants applications we remain impartial as to the origins of company’s capital but we assess company’s eligibility based on the criteria laid down in the Recommendation of European Commission no. 364/2004 of 25th February 2004 which replaced the Recommendation (EC) no.70/2001 expanding its scope to exclude aid for R&D (attachment no. 1 the definition of SMEs) i.e. we assess whether a company is micro, small or medium enterprise in terms of its headcount, turnover or its balance sheet total.
Furthermore, the proposed project must be carried out within the administrative borders of the Pomeranian voivodeship.
Note: EU grant application form must be filled out in Polish.
